Which three parts of this excerpt from Beowulf relate to a warrior code? Beowulf answered, Ecgtheow's son: "Grieve not, O wise
one! for each it is better, His friend to avenge than with vehemence wail him; Each of us must the end-day abide of His earthly existence; who is able accomplish Glory ere death! To battle-thane noble Lifeless lying, 'tis at last most fitting. Arise, O king, quick let us hasten To look at the footprint of the kinsman of Grendel! I promise thee this now: to his place he’ll escape not, . . ."
The warrior's code valued loyalty, strength, and bravery. Based on this, we can highlight these values in the following sections.:
Bravery: "Each of us must the end-day abide of." In this excerpt Beowulf shows bravery in accepting that death will come to all, it is a natural thing that we should not fear, but rather accept when the time comes. In the passage "To look at the footprint of the kingsman of Grendel!" Beowulf shows the bravery in confronting Grendel's mother (a monstrous creature of unnatural strength) if she tries to stop him from achieving his goals.
Loyalty: "I promise you this now: to his place he'll escape not, ..." In this passage, Bewoulf takes an oath to the king, showing all his loyalty and fidelity to the sovereign.
It can not be a comedy because the story is not funny. It can’t be a tragedy because it doesn’t end a tragic death or anything of that sort, the ending was good because the boys were found alive. So the only answer can be a dramatic play.

<h3>Theme or Central Idea</h3>
The central idea did not discuss any economic collapse facing West Berlin, challenge the German people to overthrow their totalitarian oppressors, or remind people of Berlin about the Marshall Plan.
Thus, the theme of Ronald Reagan's speech centered on Western prosperity based on economic and personal freedom.
